Today's Flowers; All Gold;


Tecoma capensis, yellow; I have always liked this particular yellow hue of this very profuse flowering and easily grown shrub.



Alamanda; can be trained as climber or lax shrub.


Cassia fistula is burdened with the funny name pudding pipe tree, because of its long shaped seedpods which look not at all like vanilla beans!


This shrub or small tree is  a relative of the Oleanders, everything is poisonous. It is not for nothing called the dangerously beautiful Thevetia.

All this gold is flowering in my garden at this time of year.

Great shots of golden blooms and I adore your new header with the two happy hat wearers.

O do hope you were not affected by the recent events in Q'lnd.

Great shots! Caassia will come into flower in April here. It is a part of the Hindu new year celebrations.
